Hi! I have been playing chess all my life! My goal is to study and play Chess 24/7! Right now I am a bit slow in speed chess, but I am working at getting faster!!!

My favourite chess players are Bobby Fischer, Mikhail Botvinnik, J. R. Capablanca, Garry Kasparov, and of coarse Magnus Carlsen to name a few.

My favourite chess books are M. Botvinnik 15 Games & Their Stories by Mikhail Botvinnik, Chess Fundamentals by J.R. Capablanca, Ideas Behind the Chess Openings by  Reuben Fine, The Most Instructive Games of Chess Ever Played by Irving Chernev, Think Like A GrandMaster by Alexander Kotov, and Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess.

My favourite chess opening are...mmm I can't tell you those, you might study up on them and beat me lol! But seriously I do like several openings but only in the main lines, I haven't delved into all the intricacies of any of them to much, namely the Sicilian, Petrov's, Alekhine's, Caro-Kann, etc...

I like traveling, and presently I am traveling across the US. I have been to many places, but only for a short while.


“There are those who pass like ships in the night, who meet for a moment, then sail out of sight with never a backward glance of regret; folks we know briefly then quickly forget. Then there are friends who sail together, through quiet waters and stormy weather, helping each other though joy and through strife. And they are the kind who give meaning to life.” Author Unknown-



 “There are those who pass like ships in the night, who meet for a moment, then sail out of sight ... Like ships passing in the night, soon that person will no longer be in our sight.



Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing, only a signal shown, and a distant voice in the darkness; So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another, only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence...Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
